The one iPod Touch Classic I have is the one I found six months ago in the gutter. It doesn't have a camera or a mic. So, there's no taping anything and no taking pictures. But, I've loaded video and photo libraries onto it, and a music library. The iPod Touch's speed (time it takes to load and display my playlists and photo directories) is slower than an iPhone. Everything on my iPod Touch plays, displays, and sounds very good. I never used the wireless stuff built into it. After using it for a couple of months, I started wanting a used one with a camera. Two months ago I bought a used iPhone 3 GS 8GB in excellent condition and a great price. Then I found an iPhone 4 32GB about a month ago in the woods while I was hiking around.

My old 4GB Nano has the best controls for listening to music if you're riding a bicycle (or driving a car). The rotary volume control and the track control can be operated with one finger, without turning the device on, and without looking at it. This is very important to me.

The iPod Touch and the iPhone have good volume controls. But I've not found any way to change tracks on them without turning the device on and looking at it. If someone knows how to do this better, please tell me how... thanks.

I believe the price and value really depends on the user's situation. How you operate it in the field determines how quickly the battery discharges. The camera is another important feature. The condition of the device's display and battery are very important. Then factor in the accessories included, which model, and how many GB. 32GB is the minimum size I would want to have for playing lossless audio.
